A nit comb found on sofa in our suite and empty champagne on balcony aren't the ideal things to find however food was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent, the hotel in general was beautiful, majority of staff were very welcoming and helpful, had breakfast delivered to our room it wasn't hot but was edible and the quality was excellent

We spent a night at Smiths Hotel to celebrate our anniversary and overall, it was a fantastic experience. The room was lovely, comfy and I loved the decor. Staff were friendly and the cocktails were amazing. Breakfast was 5 star, huge selection to choose from and very tasty. I cannot wait for our next stay at Smiths.

We arrived at the Smiths on Thursday 3rd April to a very warm welcome from Reception. We were allocated a room overlooking the front of the hotel which was very quiet indeed. The room was a good size and it had a well lit bathroom for applying make up etc prior to our wedding on the morning of the 4th... More

My family and I attended the restaurant on Mother's Day. This was our first visit. We were greeted and seated with a smile, and offered a drink straight away by a very lovely gentleman. First impressions play a big part and it just got better from there. The cocktails were very tasty! The hotel is decorated beautifully, and very clean... More

Thank you Kate, glad you all enjoyed Mothers Day. We'll be doing a similar thing for Easter Sunday, where prizes will be on offer and an Easter egg table for the kids to choose from - I'd book in early though as we tend to fill up quickly and have to turn reservations down. Best regards Darren More

"Eloping to" Gretna Green was the best idea my cousin ever had. Although there were only 4 of us this was the most memorable wedding I have ever been to. It was a perfect mix of fun and tradition. The organisers and marriage celebrant obviously enjoyed their work and while the wording of the ceremony was appropriately solemn they added... More

This hotel certainly punches above its' weight, great quality fixtures and fittings and lovely atmosphere, for not much more than an average hotel you get fantastic service, the staff are very attentive, great food and drinks and a feeling that you have won the lottery...I repeat not much more than an average hotel, maybe a tenner or a little more...

Thank you Tony, very pleasant words. I try to balance our price point accordingly, sometimes the rooms are going to be more expensive than other times (dependant on demand), but what's important ALL the time whether a guest gets in on a bargain or not is that the services are always the same, that the staff are equally as happy...
